Mission Statement

Camp Erin Chicago is a weekend, overnight grief camp for children and teenagers. It combines traditional, fun camp activities with grief education and emotional support, facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers. Through interactions with other youth and with adults, campers learn that they are not alone in their grief.

The camp provides a relaxed, safe and supportive setting for participants to express emotions, share their grief and learn positive coping skills. Bereavement activities include sharing circles, discussions on different types of feelings and a luminary ceremony.

Description

Camp Erin Chicago is part of the largest national network of bereavement camps in the country and was established by The Moyer Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by World Series Champion pitcher and former Chicago Cub Jamie Moyer and his wife Karen. The Moyer Foundation partners with health care and bereavement organizations in local communities to help fund, develop and grow Camp Erin nationwide.
